Afternoon Chat

Afternoon Chat
16" x 20"
acrylic on canvas board

In the crazy, busyness of life as a homeschooling mother of 4 active kids, I find myself continually drawn to finding, contemplating and painting simple moments: appreciating and applauding those who find a way to slow down.

A recent painting for the show "NW Art Herstory" on June 4th.

Nice work! Yes, it's awesome to recognize those quiet moments that we can have if we slow down to take them.

This is wonderful - and reminds me of my mom, who always took the time to take a moment to enjoy the company and conversation of another.

I love this painting Annie! I used to work with older people as a nusrse and have a special affection for them. You have captured the essence of two women sitting in the sun, perhaps they haven't walked too far, just chatting and probably bitching a teensy bit too!
